president obama time to decide if he'll send additional troops to afghanistan. white house said all along they won't make a decision on the troop levels here until this afghan election has been resolved. by all appearances now it will be president karzai. there is the issue of legitimacy. the short one, it gives a new government for the u.s. and other international partners to work with. this is part of the basis of adding troops is there must be a credible, viable partner in afghanistan. everything that has happened with this election process has cast doubt whether or not hamid karzai is that viable credible partner. the corruption is so wide and widespread across all of the government here. there is a real concern that going forward this election may just embolden hamid karzai and prevent him from firing the officials that the u.s. would like to see fired. shannon? >> shannon: now reporting live for us from afghanistan. thank you very much for the update, connor. so what implications will abdullah's withdrawal have for the u.s.? caroline shively standing by with the look at that angle.
